Summer blockbuster season has officially kicked off this weekend with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. After a rather dismal winter and spring box office season, these five films will have you running back to theaters.
Neighbors (May 9)
The worst possible place to move to after having a baby is a house right next to a frat, which is exactly what Seth Rogan’s (Knocked Up) and Rose Bryne’s (Bridesmaids) characters do. A comical battle ensues between the parents and a very fratty Zac Efron.
Godzilla (May 16)
The infamous monster is hitting the big screen again in a pricey live-action film. Although nothing is known about the plot, it’s safe to assume that citizens will be terrorized and many buildings destroyed. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) star in the highly anticipated blockbuster.
X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23)
In the much anticipated sequel, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) goes back in time to prevent a major crisis that will affect Professor X’s team and the rest of humanity. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender star as the younger versions of Professor X and Magneto.
Maleficent (May 30)
One of the most evil Disney villains is getting her own live-action origin film. Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) realizes that Aurora might be the only one to bring peace back to the kingdom. Maybe Maleficent isn’t that bad after all, and every side has their own story.
A Million Ways to Die in the West (May 30)
You’ve heard his voice in Family Guy, and you’ve seen him on the Oscars, but you’ve never seen Seth MacFarlane act onscreen like this before. The King of Comedy stars as a farmer who meets a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron), but this new-found love is tested when her intimidating and dangerous husband (Liam Neeson) comes back into town. This parody has a star-studded cast, including Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried and Giovanni Ribisi.
